    Re: Round 4 Trades

    Was pretty sold on holding O'Meara until he was an out and am now leaning towards trading him.

    Not really over the moon with any options - whether that's trading him or keeping him, they all feel pretty risky.

    Holding him - At least a week with no cash generation and anything knee related is always a worry with him, might then take him a little longer to get going before he starts to improve on his current average.

    Swallow - Didn't think he'd average much over 90 going into the season and his track record isn't much better than O'Meara's for staying on the field. That said, hard to turn your nose up at a 90 odd average, especially if he has a few good weeks in a row. Probably my preference even though it's another trade gone.

    Other options -

    Neal-Bullen - Off to a strong start with an average of 103.67 after 3 games. Scores of 110, 60 and 141. Think I'd prefer x3 100's then the high/low as seen above, 60 is offputting. Did well at VFL level last year with an average of 111 from 17 games although his AFL average was pretty poor. Perhaps he's in a better fantasy under Goodwin.

    Burton - Scores of 112 and 82 in his first two games has him sitting on a 97 average. Both fwd/back status makes for an interesting unique selection. Still too risky for mine.


    Not really much else, there are some rookies that have either rose in price or have only played the one game (Balic for example). Those that have already had a price rise makes it a little late/not really likely to outscore O'Meara. Balic being the example I've given failed to fire in his first match and it would be better to see how he backs it up first. Just thought I'd put up my thoughts, fairly sure I'll be grabbing Swallow myself, here's hoping he continues his early season form...

    Don't get too cute imo. Swallow has some level of pedigree, but the others scream Jackson Merrett.
    Never bet against Tom Rockliff

    Re: Round 4 Trades

    RDT captain choice?

    Danger v Rocky v Treloar?

    Leaning Danger but reckon the other two are likely to go big.

    Re: Round 4 Trades

    I would be going Swallow if I already didn't have him. In SC I'll hold, byt DT I'll take the risk and go Burton since I've only used one trade in that comp so far.
    hoff.

    I'm going with Rocky.

    Should probably swap to Danger but Rocky can just has an insane ceiling I don't want to take it off of him.

    I'm really unsure about what to do with JOM too. If I didn't have Swallow I'd definitely get him in but I'm thinking about holding since I do.
